Ed Tichenor is the Director and driving force of the successful organization Palm Beach County Reef Rescue.
Reef Rescue is a volunteer, nonprofit, grassroots conservation organization dedicated to protecting the coral reef resources of South Florida. Formed by a handful of local scuba divers from south Florida, their ranks have expanded worldwide to include divers and non-divers alike; comprised by all who share a commitment to protect the imperiled coral reef resources for future generations.
We first worked with Ed a few years ago to phase out the City of Delray’s sewer outfall. The videos of the outfall and Reef Rescue’s local, hands-on knowledge of the coral reefs was impressive; Ed and his team continue to do great work today to protect coral reefs. Check out their website and blog:
